A Quick History of Hendra

The name Hendra comes from a railway station that was established in 1882, most likely by Queensland Railway Commissioner Francis Curnow. Hendra is a Cornish place name that means “ancient hamlet” or “old town.”

Hendra began as a farming district that grew out of the Nundah town. Citrus fruits, grapes, and pineapples were among the crops. Dairy herds were also present.

By the early postwar years, Hendra had grown significantly. Along Zillman Road, which went up from the railway station, there were local shops and Anglican, Catholic, Methodist, and Lutheran churches and a Catholic school. Hendra State High School was erected in 1963 beside the Kedron Brook outfall at the end of Zillman Road.

Thanks to the undeveloped terrain near the outfall, the Gateway Arterial Road looped around Hendra’s northwest, eventually connecting the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast.

Typically, accommodating a major road harms property values, but Hendra has defied convention. The high property values in Clayfield and Ascot spilled over into Hendra. Backyard stables left Hendra, and proximity to the Gateway Arterial grew to be considered favourably. In the 2000s, industrial properties along Nudgee Road were converted to less unpleasant commercial uses, and housing values in Hendra rose.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
